Magnolia Mystery


It's my favorite time of year again, mystery quilt time over at Meadow Mist Designs!  This year's mystery is called Magnolia Mystery.  I was more than happy to pattern test the mystery quilt for Cheryl as a mystery again this year.  It's been so hard to keep quiet about it for the last several months, but I'm happy to share my progress on the quilt as the clues were revealed to me.

On July 6th, Cheryl released the fabric requirements for the quilt along.  On my trip to the quilt store I knew immediately one of the fabrics I would be using.  It was a wonderful black fabric with lots of bright flowers on it.  After going back and forth picking out coordinating colors and grabbing my favorite bolt of white on white, I had my color palette secured.


Next month the cutting instructions will be released.  If you haven't decided to play along yet, there is plenty of time.  With three fabrics and a background to pick out, really it's not that scary.  And I promise this quilt will not disappoint.  Are you playing along with this year's mystery quilt?  If sewing blindly scares the pants off you, put your pants back on.  Cheryl will email you a picture of what the finished top looks like, she just asks that you keep the final layout a secret for the others that are sewing it as a mystery.

And she has prizes!!!  At the end of the quilt along, she asks that you send her a picture of your finished top or quilt and she will create a parade of quilts on her blog, so that we can all see what everyone has made.  No blog required to play, just email her a picture.  Then she will randomly draw winners from the parade of quilts.  One thing is for certain, it is going to be a great time!  Join us all and come sew along!


Today I'm linking up with Main Crust Monday.

I love Cheryl's mysteries! I am excited that you documented your progress to "play along" with the rest of us. I just finalized my color scheme this weekend.

I just got some of Maureen Cracknell's Garden Dreamer fabric for a quilt I'll be making as a present. Now I'm looking at it and wondering if I should order more for the Magnolia Mystery. Oh man . . . do I need another project??? :-D

I wasn't going to...I still haven't put the blocks together for last year's, egad...but seeing your lush palette is sure tempting me...

How awesome that you got to make the quilt to test for her but still follow along for the mystery fun. It's going to be so much fun to see how this year's quilt evolves!

Another project/QAL Tish! Your enthusiasm knows no bounds! I honestly don't know how you manage to get everything done! I had a sneak peek, coloured the picture and did a fabric pull. At this stage I'm still not sure if it will push me over the edge time-wise but I figure I can always catch up later.

Excellent colors!!

Oooh, those will be pretty! I actually decided to sit this one out, though I admit I peaked at the design and it's stunning. I'm excited to live through everyone else!
